Paleo: Day 27

I made Acorn Squash Hash with Tukey Bacon for breakfast… it took a while for the squash to cook (I had never cooked an acorn squash before…also, they’re kind of impossible to peel…) but it was well worth it! It tasted amazing and the flavor was definitely one that suits the season.

For lunch, I baked some butternut squash (which I had never done before) it was fantastic!  I’m thinking that I could make a really good pumpkiny-flavored pie out of a butternut squash at a later date. I also cooked up some tasty beef that was absolutely delicious.  I mixed up a dressing (recipe from The Paleo Solution) that was absolutely fabulous.  It might be my new favorite dressing.

For dinner… I made… Paleo PIZZA!!!!!! (which we ate while watching The Biggest Loser… it’s okay though because it’s actually good for us. For real!)  😀 It was sooooo fantastic! We pre-baked the crust for about 9 minutes before adding on the toppings and that seemed to work out really well.  Oh. My. Goodness. I realized that I didn’t even miss the cheese factor, when I told Mom and Tooti this, they said they didn’t miss it either.  It was amazing, Tooti said it’s the “best pizza crust ever”… and I have to agree, scrumdiddlyumtious!

Paleo: Day 8

We had turkey bacon, applesauce, and walnuts for breakfast.  I wouldn’t have thought about combining the 3 into a meal, but it was great!

I made a salad with grilled chicken for lunch and the flavor was incredible.  It’s possibly my favorite salad now.  It was so good that Mom asked if I could “put a star” by the recipe (as a favorite).  Awesome.

After lunch, I went ahead and got the rest of the salad ready for our snack, so when I got back from Zumba with Mom (Woohoo Mom!) I just threw it all into a bowl and mixed it up.  I’m learning that planning ahead definitely helps.

For dinner I steamed veggies and cooked some steak.  I haven’t really done steak that much, ever, so I kind of guessed on the spices.  Salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika was the combination today and it turned out to be a winner.  Sooo good!!
